hello everyone,
I just did a sample area on my uhaul with the poli prep cleaner and I,m wondering if I'm changing the color of the gelcoat or if restoring it by cleaning it.
anyhow where I clean it it turns an almond color though the camper looks faded white im wondering what it actually is supposed to be? It's definately more almond tannish than white once cleaned and the poli prep works very fasy even diluted as they call for. so if anyone knows I'd appreciate it...Bruce

okay...I went ahead and did it all and put on 4 coats of poli glow....the thing looks alot better and has a nice shine now...we'll see how it holds up to new england weather now, but so far I'm glad i did it...also had my son install the allure flooring while i did that and it looks great too.......campings a coming!

Bruce:

Our UHaul is a cream color. Kevin has put multiple coats of Poly Glow on it and made it look nice and shiny. The outside seems lighter than the fiberglass on the walls, but maybe that is fading, sunlight, or old eyes.

Bruce,

I hope you don't mind, but I took the liberty of reducing the photo of your UHaul from over on uhaulcamper.com. Here it is (If this is an issue, I can edit the posting and/or have the editors remove it.)
